O. S. Penticoff Gets Heart Attack Shoveling Snow
O. S. Penticoff suffered a heart attack while shoveling snow in front of his house in Grundy Center Sunday morning. He had been shoveling for some time when he felt dizziness coming on. He went into the house and shortly after collapsed on the floor. His wife who has been partially disabled since she suffered a stroke nearly two years ago, called a doctor at once and other help. He died within an hour. He would have been 73 years old next August.
Funeral services were held on Wednesday afternoon at the Coffman funeral home. The services were conducted by Rev. J. L. Pace, pastor of the Baptist church. Burial was in the Grundy Center cemetery.

Mr. Penticoff followed the carpenter trade during most of his active life. He served some time on the Grundy Center police force. He had two operations about two months ago that left him in a somewhat weakened condition and unable to stand the strain of shoveling snow.
